Guys, I’ve gotta admit, I’ve been having way too much fun lately digging back into the recipe archives and re-introducing some of my old favorites back here on the homepage.

With 1,200+ recipes here on the blog, there are just too many good ones that get buried!

Especially anything more than 3 or so years old, which in internet years, means they were essentially written on ancient stone tablets. ;)

Don’t worry, I’ve got three brand-spankin’ new recipes comin’ atcha next week. But for today, I have one more oldie-but-goodie that I’ve been meaning to re-introduce to you for years. It originally debuted on the blog 6 years ago, and has been a reader favorite and one of my personal favorites ever since. Because it’s ridiculously quick and easy to make, it’s made with the best buttery-lemony-and-ultra-garlicky flavors, and it has this way of always impressing a crowd. (Seriously, everyone thinks it’s so fancy!)

But. Every time I see its small, out-of-focus, old photo pop up on Pinterest, a tiny part of me cringes and I feel like it’s just begging for a makeover. So this week, I re-made and re-photographed it, and then promptly re-enjoyed it for the zillionth time. And now I’m hoping that any of you who weren’t around 6 years ago will get to enjoy it too.

It’s my Garlicky Baked Shrimp!

Bake it up for about 7 minutes, then switch over to the broiler and let the Panko get a little extra golden and crispy.

And then in less than 20 minutes total, this pan of garlicky deliciousness will be yours to enjoy.


Feel free to fiddle around with the recipe and add some different seasonings if you’d like. Or if you want to toss some quick-cooking veggies in there with the shrimp (I made this with chopped asparagus the other day!), that can work too. I typically serve this with a big salad, and some roasted veggies on the side. But the serving option sky is the limit. Just make it. ;)

And enjoy!

  1. I just tried this recipe tonight and loved it :) Thank you!

  2. This is total yum

  3. Just tried this yesterday and it was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. i could eat that whole dish, lol. i love me some shrimps!

  5. Saw this on my FB page. Looks wonderful; I am from Florida, I live in PA now. I am so used to living on the Gulf Coast. I miss my fresh seafood. This caught my eye and I will try it very soon. Fresh seafood is is rather costly here, I may have to wait till summer in hopes the cost will go down a bit!! <3

  6. Here in Chicago we call this shrimp de jhonge

    • I knew it! Shrimp de Jhonge. Remember this dish from when my mom used to pick it up frozen from Marshall Fields. It’s a totally vivid memory even though I was less than 10 YO then, and more than 5x that now! It was a favorite then and now! Make this recipe at least every two weeks. Thanks!

  7. Made this tonight. Received compliments and my fiancé was very impressed. Can’t wait to make this again!!!!

  8. Has anyone tried a variation of this with precooked shrimp? I’d love to use what I already have. I know it wouldn’t taste the same, but if anyone has suggestions on how I could do this I would very much appreciate it!

    • Hi Kate!

      I’m all for using what you have. I would not double-bake the shrimp (if they have already been cooked). You could cook up the topping in a saute pan on the stove, and then add the shrimp at the last second to warm them, and serve the dish that way. If you double-bake the shrimp, I’m afraid they would be too tough and overcooked. Good luck!


  9. I have made this twice this week and CANNOT GET IT INTO MY FACE FAST ENOUGH. wow. DELISH. thank you!!!!

  10. Looks amazing! What sides would you serve with this?

  11. Hi Ali!

    I really wanna try this recipe but was wondering if I could use something else to substitute for the white wine. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated =)

  12. What I would give for this RIGHT now!!! Looks fantastic!! Gotta try!!! :-)

  13. This has become one of my favorite “quick dinners”! It is so simple and delicious. I always make sure I have a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for nights when I just don’t feel like making a big meal. We serve it with rice and baked asparagus, or just with a big salad.

  14. Do you serve this as is, or over noodles with a salad?  

    Thanks, Jan

  15. Made this dish a few weeks ago to rave reviews from my entire family, including my insanely picky 6 yr. old son.  He actually just requested it again, so it’s what’s for dinner tonight!  Thanks for the delicious and simple recipe!

    • Thanks for sharing, Melissa — we’re so happy this was a hit with your family (especially your six year-old!) : )

  16. Not only does three internet years feel like miles away, but you can also notice it on how much one have changed in the photo aesthetics. There’s a lot of inspiration happening in that amount of time!

  17. This looks divine! Everyone in my family loooves shrimp, so I’m sure this would be a huge success. Love how easy and quick this recipe is :-)

  18. Oooo garlicky baked shrimp is the best! I love it over some linguine or penne. YUM! :)

  19. Garlicky shrimp & shrimp scampi  are one of my favorite things in the world. The addition of panko sounds incredible!

  20. Wow that looks absolutely perfect! Fantastic recipe that I cannot wait to try, PINNED!

  21. This is my dream dinner! Thank you for reposting it.  Cannot wait to make it!

  22. Wow this looks very tasty. I love the crisp in sushi as well so have to try and make this some day. Thanks for sharing

  23. This is one of our favs! This is what’s for dinner tonight #

  24. Lovely shrimps. I can imagine a cold bottle of wine with these precious shrimps and oh my.. Thank you for sharing! Adding it to my list. 

  25. Sounds delicious! I am going to make this and serve it over linguine – do you think it will be “saucy” enough for a pasta or should I make a lemon butter sauce to pour on top of the shrimp & linguine?

    • That sounds lovely Carolyn! We’d recommend making a little lemon butter sauce to pour on top, as this isn’t terribly saucy. We hope you enjoy! :)

  26. That looks soo good!! Thank you for sharing your recipe :) will definitely give this a try!

  27. This has seriously been one of my most-cooked recipes from your website! Both my mom and my fiancé request it whenever I’m in KC to visit! I typically serve it with some brown rice or quinoa and fresh green beans on the side :) 

  28. I was wondering what size shrimp did you use for when you made this. Looks soo delicious!

    • Thank you! I used extra-large shrimp, but any size will do. (Just keep an eye on them in the oven, because the smaller sizes of shrimp will cook faster.) ;)

  29. I’m making this tonight with some fresh asparagus that I just got from my CSA so excited.

  30. This shrimp looks AWESOME!!

  31. Yummm!!! These look so great. I want to dip all of the bread in that buttery goodness!

  32. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING, better in life than to watch shrimp cook.

  33. Your recipe looks amazing. My husband and are carb free eaters, do you know a good substitute for panko?

    • Thank you Kandi! And hmmm, you could experiment with crushed almonds — if you try it, let us know!

  34. What can I substitute for the white wine? 

    • Hi Cheryl! You can sub white vinegar or fresh lemon juice diluted with a bit of water. We hope you enjoy!

  35. I made this dish tonight and it was a hit!!!!

  36. This recipe is great…tasty and easy……great for company with rice and salad and also as an appetizer with little fancy toothpicks….looks cute!

  37. Quick question…what can you substitute for the white wine if you don’t have any on hand?

    • Hi Liza! Good question! If you don’t have any white wine, you could use white vinegar, lemon juice diluted with a little water, or a little white grape juice and some white vinegar. We hope that helps and that you enjoy the recipe!

  38. Oh my gush, I hope they taste as great as they look. Great photos.

  39. Cooked this over rice and mixed vegetables. Delicious!! Thanks for this recipe! 

  40. made this for the first time last night and almost died. it was so freaking amazing. we usually use our go-to ina garten recipe for shrimp scampi but this just knocked that one out of the league. the only changes i made were to cut the recipe down by a 1/3 (we only had a 1lb bag of shrimp on hand) and add some crushed red pepper flakes during the salt & pepper step. 

    we served this with greek lemon rice (can’t get enough lemon…) and some roasted broccoli with…you guessed it, a little more lemon. HEAVEN ON A PLATE. thank you for sharing this amazing recipe!!

    • Awww thanks for your sweet words Melissa — we’re so happy you guys loved it so much! :D

  41. Made this twice-so very good! But my husband is allergic to shrimp. Is there a fish you would recommend that we could try to substitute for the shrimp?

    • Hi Donna! We think salmon would be delicious! However, it will need longer to bake — probably about 15 minutes or so. We hope you enjoy!

  42. This was great served with garlic butter rice, family loved it!!!

  43. This looks delicious! How many adults  would this recipe serve? I would like to make it for a dinner party.

  44. Made this shrimp dish for an appetizer the other evening.  Wow!!!!  Fantastic. Better than ANY restaurant shrimp scampi I’ve ever had. 

  45. This looks INCREDIBLE! Making it ASAP, but a quick question first, can I remove the tails? I usually remove the tails when I cook shrimp/prawns but I’m just wondering if there’s s reason you leave them on. THANKS!

    • Thanks Megan! Yes, you can remove the tails. We hope you enjoy this! :)

  46. Made this last night and it was super yummy! I added chopped asparagus to the pan and that worked great. Recipe is definately a keeper.

  47. Quick question, bought everything to make this for dinner and completely forgot Panko. I do have normal breadcrumbs in the pantry. Do you think that will work just fine or should I head back out to the store ?! 
    Thank you!! 

    • Hi Tiffany! These will still work with regular breadcrumbs — it’ll be a slightly different taste and texture, but that’s okay. We hope you enjoy!

  48. This looks amazing! I’m going to try this tonight with the thawed shrimp in the fridge. Probably serve with broccoli and noodles. Getting peckish just looking at the photos!

  49. Can you use precooked Shrimp?

    • Hmmm, that’s a good question. We haven’t tried this with precooked shrimp, so we can’t say for sure. However, we’re wary to recommend that for this recipe, as we’re concerned it might get overcooked. Maybe you could try it and it just wouldn’t need as long to bake?

  50. Wow! This is super fast and delicious!
